No economical choices in this town. I guess they think the wine thing makes them really special. That said, the Barn Motor Inn offers decent value (relative to local options). We were attending a local winery dinner and decided we'd rather spend money on wine than more expensive accommodations in the local mediocre chain motel that is hugely overpriced. The Barn Motor Inn served its purpose fine for a night. It's circa 1970s interior, but the room was clean, the TV worked and got all the standard cable stations, and the mattress was new enough to offer good support. We asked for a quite room and got one. Both of us slept pretty well. The front office staff was pleasant and they had fresh coffee in the morning (no continental breakfast here).
We didn't eat at the restaurant, but stopped in to check it out. The hostess gave us glasses of water to drink while we were just standing around because we told her we'd been drinking a lot of wine. Menu prices looked fairly reasonable and they have a rather random assortment of antiques and local cattle brands to decorate the place.
I'd stay here again for a night for the same reason we chose it in the first place. We've stayed in much newer and nicer places for less in other locales, but Prosser just doesn't have much to choose from. The Barn Motor Inn sure beats a DUI trying to drive to the Tri Cities or Yakima to overnight after drinking.
